Abstract

The Australian Ursulines represent an original case of contemporary female religiosity, which overcomes the boundaries of the religious and the secular, the past and the present, the female and the universal. Their model of religious life is a-institutional, inward-looking, a-hierarchical, democratic, and respectful of the members’ choices. Furthermore, in their participation to civic life, the Australian Ursulines promote innovative social and political initiatives. They have recently developed these characteristics in continuation with the spirit and thought of the sixteenth-century foundress of their order, Angela Merici.
